The former Chinese premier who ordered martial law during pro-Democracy protests in Tiananmen Square has died, aged 90. Li Peng died on Monday night in Beijing of an unspecified illness, according to media reports. Thousands of people gathered in the centre of Beijing for a series of protests during the spring and summer of 1989, which were brought to an end in hostile fashion by the military, with hundreds of civilians killed in the act. Mr Li was broadly disliked by the population as a result of what happened and became known as the ‘Butcher of Beijing’. He stepped down as premier in 1998 to become chairman of the Chinese parliament before retiring in 2003. Image: AP
